Extended Summary

Xavier has enjoyed having Hugo around, but he’s worried – he doesn’t want him to go to prison. Xavier wants to know if Hugo is taking Martha with him when he goes, but Hugo says no, it’s too dangerous. Alf is reeling after Martha’s announcement that she has signed the farm over to him and she’s leaving the Bay, with or without Hugo. Xavier tells Hugo Martha loves him, she’ll want to go with him, but Hugo doesn’t agree. Martha arrives and tells Hugo he has 24 hours to decide whether she’s going with him – after that she’s gone anyway. Hugo tells her not to give up the farm, but Martha refuses.

Ruby thinks Xavier is avoiding her and she doesn’t know what to do, especially in light of her feelings for Liam. Ruby asks both Nicole and Irene for advice; she’s at a total loss over what to do about Xavier. Ruby confronts him, confessing that she does have feelings for Liam, but nothing is going on. He couldn’t care and breaks up with her. Nicole tries to comfort Ruby – she is sad about how it ended, she wanted to stay friends. Nicole advises Xavier to be sure he wants to lose Ruby as a friend, because she doesn’t. He is left with food for thought.

Elijah tries to warn Leah about all the ways his mother will try to trap her, but she’s not worried. She thinks everything will be fine. He gives her a do’s and don’ts list and as much as Leah teases, Elijah is being very serious. But when Lijuan arrives, Leah is taken aback to find her to be a little Chinese lady, and someone who is nothing but sweet, wrapping Leah in a bear hug when they meet. Elijah can only be sympathetic.

Detective Eaves arrives from the city to investigate Killer and take him back to the city. He goes out to the farm with Angelo and interviews Martha. Listening in the other room, Hugo recognises his voice as the guy he paid off when he was people smuggling. Eaves was the inside man for the whole operation. He’s worried for Martha as Eaves grills her. When Eaves returns to the station, he interviews Killer who is evidently surprised to see him. There’s a shot and Angelo runs in to find Killer dead and Eaves wounded. At the same time Angelo receives a text message from Martha, with a warning from Hugo to say that Eaves is dirty and cannot be trusted.
